He returned to Yale and taught dramatics for 12 years, interrupted when he served as an Army first lieutenant during World War I. Then he headed for Broadway. He appeared in the Broadway hit "On Your Toes" in 1929 with the facial adornment that was to give him his nickname, and from then on he refused to shave it off, despite pleas of some film producers. He went to Hollywood in 1931 and made a successful string of films including "Nothing Sacred," "Arsene Lupin Returns" and "Lord Jeff." Among his other films were "Dancing Coed," "Life Begins at Eight-Thirty," "Bishop's Wife," "Irish Eyes Are Smiling" and "As Young as You Feel." He won an Academy Award nomination for "The Pied Piper." In 1939, he returned to Broadway to originate the Sheridan .Whiteside role. Woolley's magnificent, meticulously trimmed beard had several close calls. Once it caught fire when a waiter brushed too close to it while serving Woolley cherries jubilee. Then it was dunked in wet concrete and "slightly damaged" at Grauman's Chinese Theater In Hollywood to "preserve it for posterity." In 1950, Woolley began a radio show, "The Magnificent Montague," and it was top rated for six years. Woolley contended it would have been on top much longer if television had not taken over the home entertainment field. In 1957, Woolley was stricken with neuritis and for the next several years lived a quiet bachelor's life in his $3,500 home at Saratoga Springs. He had plenty of money, but refused to move out of the modest house he had owned for years. Woolley is survived by a sister-in-law, Mrs. James Woolley of Saratoga Springs. •:SO A.M. • 8:30 PJVf. n?anninq's *\ -. **+* CAFETERIA SERVICE • MAKPAST LUNCH • DINNIK 3039 BAIT THOUA* «wr*i TTH'AYSHOI AT V» t*MAM Kit*)*)* •/ KWf.

It can be assumed that under the proposal present studios of the three mammoths would be abandoned, he added. The Joint announcement added: "... the utilization of such center will not In any way affect or alter the individual identity or autonomy of the respective companies. "In addition, the new motion picture and television production center as planned can accommodate, and will be available to, other companies as well as independent producers." The announcement said the new studios would be within Los Angeles County and added: "One of the sites under consideration Is the 20th Century-Fox 3anch at Malibu, consisting of 2,500 acres."

All existing studios were started lit the 1920s and 1930s. The rapid growth through the years to their present size, in most cases, has made modernization difficult if not impossible." The studios said their joint announcement, "which comes at challenging time, is a Significant reflection of confidence in the future of the industry by the heads of the three companies and gives promise of greater opportunity and employment for the industry's thousands of studio workers. It also assures that Hollywood and Southern California will remain the capital of international entertainment, a place it has held since the founding of the industry." Studio spokesmen stressed that the move would not constitute a merger. We could all stand new equipment and stages," one remarked A dozen years ago, before television's heaviest inroads, a major studio might have half a dozen films In production on its lot.
